Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world." -- John 18:36 (ESV)
With 2020 right around the corner we are starting to see the NAR dominionist machine start to swing into operation. We will be bombarded with demands to vote Republican or face the fiery depths of hell itself. Don't believe me? Click the above link to the latest offering from Bert Farias, who used to be somewhat reasonable. The devil loves ensnaring the minds and hearts of kingdom voices and having them rattle off the most foolish and senseless beliefs in the name of Jesus. Remember beloved, politics divides by nature, especially in this country. You are either with us or against us! As Christians however, we have a higher calling and responsibility and that is to the Gospel. You remember the Gospel? Well Bert Farias has apparently forgotten it because he jumps off the cliff in the above article. What you are about to witness is the end result of idol worshipping this country. No one benefits except the devil when your theology eliminates half the people up front. Forgive my anger in advance but what Bert Farias tries to do here is so demonic and dangerous. Let us reason together again.
"Wake up, America! Wake up, church! I've never witnessed so many cowards, frauds and wimps in Christianity as I do today. So many are afraid to rock the boat, make waves, take a strong stand or speak up. So many are only concerned about their reputation, their own territory or house, their popularity, their followers or church members. Yet there are others who still think this is a game. I've written strong articles the last few months to warn people on the state of the nation and the church, and the approaching danger, but so many are either slow to believe it or too cowardly to share it or speak up themselves. Other solid, stable ministerial men of stature and influential voices are doing the same, while many yawn, slumber and even snore. Wake up!" -- Bert Farias
This is not a game sir and it is time you stop pretending the Gospel is. Yes, I am talking to you Bert Farias. You can take your NAR dominionist agenda and shove it. You do not have a corner on righteousness and neither does your politics. You have abandoned your post as a minister and now are nothing more than a whore for the Republican Party. It is not about being afraid to make waves you presumptuous heretic. What the church has fallen away from is the Gospel but you seemingly do not care. You only want them to be more vocal about your personal politics. Except your personal political choice is no more righteous than any other in that none are righteous. None care about the cause of Christ. So wake up indeed Bert Farias and realize that you have betrayed your Savior for thirty pieces of political silver.
"The media and Democrats in America are a cabal united to destroy our Constitutional republic. They are a clear and present danger to the Constitution and law and order." -- Bert Farias
Are you insane? Have you watched Fox News so much that the obvious conspiracy theories that nominally coherent people dismiss are now your gospel? It is not enough just to disagree politically but now you honestly think that the entire Democratic Party is a clear and present danger to the constitution and law and order? Seriously? As a minister do you want to explain the virtue of an evangelism strategy that eliminates half the people from the message at the start? As if that was bad enough you add that the media is in on this desire to destroy America? Let's be clear. You may disagree with someone or even a media outlet's coverage but you are taking that disagreement and going nuclear with it. The only one sounding crazy is you.
"Look for a report from anyone on the Jeff Epstein case that gives you even basic facts, fully available, about Democrats receiving money, riding on jets, visiting private islands and showing up for arranged parties with children procured for sexual activities with these Democratic adults. You will find a report on Republicans instead. Any obscure point of contact between a Republican and Epstein will be reported with no facts but will include "friends" or "went easy on him" references that are nothing short of propaganda, deception and misleading for the purpose of destroying Donald Trump and anyone in the party of opposition. At the same time, the blockbuster information on present and previous Democrat leaders is missing from the discussion. It is as if Bill Clinton did not ride on the jets, visit the private island or participate in the parties. It is as if the money given to Democrat leaders were not given at all. Some of the Democrats who received the money say they will not return it, but this is not reported as a smoking gun. No! Only when a Republican can be found to have any involvement does the searchlight come on and innuendos begin to flow." -- Bert Farias
